Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:4


18:4 And I heard another voice - Of Christ, whose people, secretly scattered even there, are warned of her approaching destruction. That ye be not partakers of her sins - That is, of the fruits of them. What a remarkable providence it was that the Revelation was printed in the midst of Spain, in the great Polyglot Bible, before the Reformation! Else how much easier had it been for the Papists to reject the whole book, than it is to evade these striking parts of it.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:4


Re 18:4 Come out of her, my people. This invitation is given to the people of God yet in captivity, lest by remaining they should be involved in her destruction. As God once had a captive people in the old Mesopotamian Babylon, so he has a people in the spiritual Babylon. Ever since the Reformation began, his voice has called on them to come out of her. Nor can it be doubted that he has many true and earnest worshipers still who have found enough of Christ in the mazes of the Papacy to have given him their hearts. The condemnation of the great spiritual despotism is not a declaration that all whom she has enslaved are the children of the devil.

Discussion for Revelation 18

    I wonder if mystical Babylon is meant to be all people who are not servants of God, but followers of Satan pursuing worldly pleasures. Let us take warning from the things which brought others to destruction and set our affections on heaven above and not the changeable nature of earthly things.
  • Dannie Jackson
    We must not try to interpret scripture about Babylon to mean any city or nation that did not exist in Bible times. As for the sins of the nations, you have to look at the long history of the nations and their deeds. Hence look at Rome, it has a long history, especially the Vatican. God will judge all nations and those that have been around the longest have a long list of sins to be judged.

    babylon of old or is this referring to the system of world Banking. since we see this as John's vision for the future events I would place this in our life time. I believe it refers to NEW YORK as babylon, many language's and all the worlds trade goes thru there and it says a city not country. it takes on 1 hour to destroy that's the key. old babylon would take armys days to destroy a city .
  • Jason
    Rome is the 1st beast of Revelation 13 , 14, and is the mother of harlots of Rev 17.
    Rome is the queen of Babylon... Babylon = religious confusion.
  • John
    There is no Doubt! America is Babylon. There are so many parts of revelation 18 that says America is Babylon the Great. Here is ONE. And Revelation 18 verse 7 says How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow, give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Does America not Boast How good she is.
  • JESUS is Lord
    America alone is NOT Mystery Babylon the great.
    Revelation 17 explains.
    Vs. 1 the great whore sitteeth on many waters.
    Then ..
    15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
